Must Listen: Emily Arrow ~ Storytime Singalong

I’ve mentioned Emily Arrow before on my blog, but that was before I got a copy of her Storytime Singalong, Vol. 1 CD.  This CD is absolutely pure gold for storytimes and families!  Emily has done a few of her own songs, but what I absolutely am in awe of is her ability to take an already awesome picture book and make a song about it too!  Check out Emily’s website and her YouTube channel to see some of the cute music videos.

I sent a copy of the CD to a friend with an almost- 5 year old and a 2 year old and they haven’t stopped listening to it, in fact, they are now singing the songs a capella together as a family in the grocery store.  As my friend put it, “It’s a welcome change to the Frozen soundtrack that I’ve listened to for so long.”  And when I asked her almost 5-year old what her favorite song was, she replied without hesitation, “Number 5” (which is based on the book, Are We There, Yeti? by Aslyn Anstee).

So whether you’re a librarian looking for great new music for storytime (I just used Emily’s Max the Brave song for storytime this week) or a family looking for ways to have fun and get moving together, please check out Emily Arrow, because the CD case says “Vol. 1” and I’d love, love, love to see a “Vol. 2.”
